Finally at night, On my laptop, also running Windows 8, i was planning on rounding up my code for the NACOSS(Nigerian Association of Computer Science Students) 2013 Unilorin exhibition, but before that i tried using DriverPack to fix my sound card missing driver issue and i was prompted to restart. Problem was... It wasnt coming back on..
I thought of all the code i had been writing for the exhibition and felt i had to do something urgently... I ran Automatic repair for about half an hour but it couldnt be repaired. It was the same problem my friend was having and i made fun of him.. i felt like i was being punished.
Like a bell struck at midnight, an idea popped in my head and i thought of System restore, i opened it through advanced options and i found a restore point just before installing driver pack. My system restored and my problem was solved.. Except for the fact that by the time it was fixed, i was already feeling sleepy... End of the night. I dunno if the driver pack isn't compatible with Windows 8.
The Exhibition however was a cool one, i exhibited a previous project, Unilorites which had undergone a major upgrade and i am happy to say it was good enough to win the exhibition. I won and was awarded NACOSS programmer of the year... A title to behold :-)
